Allow the Meynell & South Staffs Hunt on National Trust land
- Meynell and South Staffordshire Hunt
- Closed on
Thank you to everyone who signed and supported this campaign - the petition had 4887 signatures which is a great result. We have a meeting with the National Trust later this month and will present them with a copy of the petition.
The origins of this well-known and prestigious pack of hounds can be traced back to the 17th century.
The Meynell and South Staffordshire are privileged to have one of the most varied, interesting and challenging grass countries in the whole of England.
Within this area are the National Trust properties of Calke Abbey, Kedleston Hall and Ilam Park.
The hunt was extremely disappointed with the judgement passed at Derby Magistrates Court; as result the remaining masters have had a complete review of its operating code to ensure that it can demonstrate that its activities are done within the Law.
The existing Masters’ responsibility to act legally throughout the season is of utmost importance and we are aware that the ongoing support of our Landowners is crucial.
We, the undersigned, call on the National Trust to continue to allow the Meynell & South Staffs Hunt to cross National Trust land.
The Allow the Meynell & South Staffs Hunt on National Trust land petition to The National Trust was written by Meynell and South Staffordshire Hunt and is in the category Sports at GoPetition.
